Having a large wedding is a great way to celebrate the love between you and your partner. Large weddings will be memorable for everyone involved, and planning a large wedding does not have to be stressful. Here are a few tips to help you make the most out of your wedding planning experience without becoming overwhelmed or stressed out.
Hire vendors you can trust. Having a reliable list of vendors at your service will help prevent a total wedding meltdown. Enlisting a group of experienced professionals will help you to feel like you are in good hands and reduce the amount of time that you spend worried about things not getting done. In order to find the right vendors, consult your friends and family. Use vendors that others have had success with and don’t be afraid to ask people for recommendations. If someone did a good job for another person, chances are they will do a good job for you too.
Reputable vendors are easy to find when you enlist the help of co-workers and friends. Chances are, everyone you know has either had a wedding or knows someone who has. Enlisting your personal network to help you hire vendors will take the load off of your back and ensure that you’re in reliable hands.
Instead of asking for wedding gifts, ask your loved ones for wedding help. You’d be surprised at what can get accomplished when people come together and pool their resources. Having the help of others will be the best wedding present you’ll receive. The more people willing to help you, the better. Don’t hesitate to delegate certain aspects of your wedding to people that you trust. For those you have less confidence in, find small things that are still necessary.
If you decide to have a large wedding make sure that you set aside plenty of time for planning. It may not be feasible for you to have a large wedding if you are the type of person who does things last minute or if you never find yourself having enough time in the day. If this sounds like you, a large wedding may be an invitation for stress. Make sure that you are able to set aside plenty of time to devote strictly to planning your wedding. If you try and plan a large wedding on a whim or on too short of notice, you may find yourself in messy situation. If you have the option of hiring a wedding planner, by all means do so. A wedding planner will reduce the amount of responsibilities on your plate and free up a lot of time for you to enjoy the wedding planning process with your partner.
